Meet Jimmy Sliwa – Your Wellness Therapist

I often get asked, “why did you choose to become a physical therapist?” To be honest, it wasn’t my first choice. I wanted to be a coach and teacher. I enjoy helping others see their potential and encourage them to become their best.

Through a series of internships and clinical experiences, I realized physical therapists are nothing more than coaches and teachers for health and wellness. I began to see how physical therapists can coach patients to better health and quality of life. That’s what I wanted to do!

My clinical expertise is taken from my athletic background as a dual sport collegiate athlete in men’s soccer and track and field. I also am passionate about using technology to modernize physical therapy and give patients the best results. Through the best tools and compassionate care I have seen countless patients reach their healing potential.

Meet Sarah Forbush – Your Massage Therapist

I began my journey into Massage Therapy in 2021 at the Alaska Career College and knew right away I wanted to work in the clinical side of massage. Years prior, I remember the first time I realized how devastating it can be to lose your ability to engage in the activities you love because of injury or dysfunction. As a Licensed Massage Therapist I am thrilled to be a part of your path to healing so you get back to the activities you love.

I joined the team here at Northern Edge in spring of 2023. A typical session with me involves soft tissue manipulation to alleviate muscle tension brought about by compensatory or postural habits so you can progressively move more comfortably.
